    Son has been watching some dates change on DoDMerb.

    Thanks for answers to yesterday's question. Today, we have a new one:

    A new line appeared for each of the Academies that he is applying to.

    USMMA says accepted.
    USNA says in process.

    but,

    USCGA says Alternate

    Does anyone know what this means? Son was deferred to RA. Does that mean he has already been re-evaluated in RA?

    I understand that the info on DoDMerb comes from the Academies, but we just don't know what this means?

    When does the CEEB start looking at the deferred files again?

    Thanks for all your help/answers!

    "Alternate" is his new applicant status. This is given to candidates who are not given an appointment nor outright rejected.

    He will be considered when the board meets again. I believe they start up again in late January. The "admiral":biggrin: will certainly clarify this for us.

    Thank you, bossf51!!

    Son didn't know what "alternate" meant. And I was afraid (didn't tell him) that maybe it meant he'd already been re-evaluated in RA and was now "waitlisted."

    Thanks for calming my nerves!

    I will concur with the BossMan. It does not mean he has been reviewed or "re-evaluated" again -the CCEB will not start looking again at files until 15 January.

    Please remember, that "Alternate" status is NOT a waiting list - up to 30-40% of the class will be taken from those with "Alternate" status.

    :cool:

    Thanks, Luigi!

    Hoping son will be one of those 30-40%

    I have learned so much from all of you on this forum. I don't know how we could have ever gotten through this process without the input of the knowledgable posters on this site!

    Admissions status DoDMERB changed today to: "Offer Extended". Does this mean a big envelope will be arriving soon?

    Congrats to those of you who have heard the good news through the DODMERB site. Are there any other EA applicants out there who have not seen any changes in date or status at the DODMERB site?

    DODMERB

    I checked it out today and I got alternate.
    But I'm definitely planning on updating my application with new things and redoing the physical fitness test.
    Congrats to everyone who got the big envelope!
    Hopefully see you in June!

    I got a defferal letter from CGA. It was expected based on call from the coach. My status did change for KP as "offer extended" on the DoDMERB website. I will continue to wait.

    Posted this under another thread, but got no direct comments from anyone. My son applied EA to USCGA. We are still waiting to hear something. No mail as of yet. In DoDMERB website, his admission status is listed as "in process". Oddly enough, USMMA admission status is listed as "offer extended". He never pursued the application process for MMA as he decided he was only interested in CGA. Anyone think this was posted incorrectly to the wrong service academy by DoDMERB? There can't be any way he has been offered an appointment from MMA when we never sent in recommendations, ACT scores, PFE, etc. His application there never went past part one of the electronic application online. Of course this would have to be noticed by me on a Friday night and no way to call DoDMERB to question. The waiting for a decision has been agonizing enough without this new discovery. We are in NC and my son's friend got his appointment packet Monday. We will be so GLAD to find out something....

    I think nobody responded because we don't know what to say. The MMA thing has to be an error. I can't imagine somebody being given an appointment without submitting the documentation needed to evaluate a candidacy.
    That said, good luck with the CGA app.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess bouncing the question off someone else helps with the stressful wait for an official answer from CGA. I am about ready to start accosting the mailman at the post office before he even leaves to deliver mail. I am certainly hoping the "offer extended" under the wrong service academy is the situation. I have been watching the DoDMERB in an effort to "cheat" and find out sooner before the mail arrives.
    Unfortunately, now this has just added one more question to the mix.

    does "in process" on the dodmerb site mean that a decision has not been made? and therefore the deferral or appointment letter has not left the academy?

    ...or the admissions office has not notified DODMERB as of yet therefore DODMERB has no info to post.

    Yeah, I'm another Early Action applicant. DoDMERB hasn't updated my status yet, so it still reads "In Process." I absolutely loved AIM, so I'm really hoping I get in.

    We just looked at DODMERB and for USCGA it said Alternate for USNA say In Process and here is the kicker she has put in an Application for Merchant Marine and didn't ever pursue it and it says offer extended? I am not sure if that is correct or not, but when she had a congregational interview one of the guys was from Merchant Marines and said we need someone like you and here is my card call me???? What do you all think?
